GOLD IX MAINE.
Gold has lieen found in Maine
alxnit four miles from East Pitts-
ton. The discovery of gold in this
place was due to Mr. Pendeton,
who bought the farm where the
mine is fourteen years ago. He
found that after taking possession
that he had plent of rocks on his
land, and it was breaking np these
impediments to profitable agricul
tural work that he discovered the
gold bearing quartz. He sent away
tome specimens and had them as
sayed, with the resultthat he turn
ed from a common farmer into
what he believed a more profitable
profession, that of gold mining
He opened a ledge and sunk a
shaft to fifteen feet. The ore was
tested as the work progressed and
showed the presence of gold in pay
ins (i nan tities right along. The
rook is a white quartz.

missioner Durham Is one of the most
affable and companionable of men,
whose most striking characteristic Is
his perfect frankness. In his political
affiliations this trait is marked, to
gether with a disposition to grasp all
the details of a situation at once and
act accordingly. The secret of Commis
sioner Durham's success Is his affabil
ity, his trenkness and his thorough
knowledge of Philadelphia, where he
has spent all his life. The companion

tract and hold men.
Whatever Israel W. Durham has
achieved in politics is due eutlrely to
his own efforts, backed by an indomit
able will. Immediately on graduating
from the Philadelphia high school he
learned the brickmaking trade, which
he deserted to enter the flour and feed
business. His popularity led to his
entrance into politics, aud in 18SS,
when not yet 30 years of age, he was
elected by the Republicans one of the
police magistrates of Philadelphia. Ha
was re-elected in 1SS0, and was urged
for re-election in '95, but declined a
He became a state senator in 1897,
when he was elected from the Sixth
district, with practically no opposition,
to fill the unexpired term of his per
sonal friend, Hon. Boles Penrose, who
bad been elected United States senator.
In 1688 Mr. Durham was a delegate to
the Republican national convention at
Chicago, and from this time dates his
rise from ward politics into the broad
er domain of city and state politics. It
was largely due to Mr. Durham that

missioner Durham has ben a potent
factor la protecting and directing the
interests of Hon. M. S. Quay and the

He was one of the first of the state
leaders to espouse the cause of Hon.
William A. Stone as a gubernatorial
candidate, and so earnestly and ef
fectually did he work for success tha.
he was rewarded by Oovernor Stone
with appointment as State Insurance
In the legislative session of 1899 the
fact was universally recognized that
the mainspring cf the Quay contest at

a lad of 14, was one of the first helpers
employed around this establishment,
which was the forerunner of one of the
greatest of America's industries.
Attorney General Elkin is a stalwart
In appearance as well as In principle.
He is six feet high and built In pro

exact rather than for the eloquent in
public address. His home is in Indi
ana, where his political and official
duties cannot win him from a fireside
whose adornment Is a wife, two young
daughters and a son.
John P. Elkin is of Scotch-Irish an
cestry. He was educated in the public
schools, and graduated from the In
diana Normal school. He was a school
teacher at 15 year
of age. In 1882 he
entered the Univer
sity of Michigan at
Ann Arbor, and two
years later, in 1884.
he was graduated
with honor from its
law department. In
the same year, on
his return to Penn
sylvania, he was
called to the bar of
Indiana county, and in the fall election
was chosen one of Indiana's represent
atives to the legislature of 1S85. At
this time he was but 24 yean of age,
one of the youngest men who had ever
sat in the house.
The vigor of youth inspired him to
conspicuous efforts at this session, and
in 1887 he was re-elected and made
chairman of the important Corr-mit-tee
on Constitutional Reform. Among
the many positions of trust aud honor
in politics and out cf it which he has
held was that of chairman of the Re

story of Col. Guffey's life ha3 been one
long romance. He ia not only tje
largest oil producer in the United
States, but employs more men in his
gold and silver mining Derations in
Idaho than any single Individual.
Col. Guffey comes from one of the
oldest families In Pennsylvania. On
his mother's side he ts descended from
the historic Clan Campbell of Scot
land, while on his paternal side the
Guffey family. has for generations past
been prominent in the Shire of lennrk
In the Scottish lowlands. The first
Guffey arrived in this country in 1738,
settled In Philadelphia and subse
quently penetrated the then wilderness
to what is now Westmoreland county,
where he established the first English
settlement In that county and the sec
ond west of the Alleghenles.
James M. Guffey passed his early days
on his father's farm and attending the
district school. At the age of IS ho
became a clerk in tho superintendent's
office of the Louis

railroad, at Louis

was while here that
his attention wasdl-00'- J""
rected to the new and wonderful oil
fields of his native state. He returned
to Pennsylvania and immediately en
tered upon a career as a producer and
operator which has had few parallels
in the phenomenal story of tho oil re
gions. Within a few rears his operations
covered five counties. He drilled tho

national committee from Pennsylvania,
which position he has held ever since.
It is the only office In the gift of his
party that he has held, and ho haa re

The striking feature of CoL Gaffer
political career has been his control of
men. He is a keen student of human
nature and reads men intuitively. To
this fact and the wide experience of
his life In the business world Is due
the remarkable hold he has upon his
party and its leaders. Col. Duffer's to

Every man has some marked pecu
liarity, and that of Senator Flinn is
directness coupled with decision. He
goes straight to tbe heart of a ques
tion, settles it and dismisses it to take
up the next problem. He Is a high type
of the business man in politics. Be

trade of brass finishing and gas and
steam fittings, by his own efforts he
has become one of tbe largest con

Senator Flinn was born at Manches
ter. England, on May 6. 1851. of Irish
parentage. His parents removed to
Pittsburg in the year of his birth, and
since that time he has made his home
In the "Smoky City." While a young
man he began Uking an active Interest
in politics, soon rose to be a precinct

1894 be was re-elected with practically
no opposition, and two years ago for
the third time he received an over

delegate every state convention, and
since 1S84 has been a delegate to every

His years of service In house and sen

Senator Flinn one of the best parlia

of the senate he expresses himself with
ease, fluency and precision of grammat

At the head of the allied Independ

sou of a farmer and
a Republican from
his birth. Senator

fices that Senator Martin has filled
with credit to himself and his party are
those of Mercantile Appraiser for five
years. Collector of Internal Revenue tor
the Ninth district for two years and
Secretary of the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania for nearly two years.
At the national convention of 1896
he was one of the six Pennsylvania

delegation in voting for Senator Quay
for president. He was a delegate to tbe
national convention at Minneapolis
and also a delegate to the national con
vention in '88 which nominated Har

The senatorial district which Mr.
Martin represents gave him the dis
tinction two years ago of the largest
majority ever given a senatorial can
didate In the state, he having defeated
the Democratic nominee by over 21,000
votes In a poll of about 37,000.
Senator Martin holds a high place In
the councils of the independent Re

In Philadelphia entitles hlra to such

A Chestnut Farm.
E. W. Warner of Williamsport,
ia the owner of probably the odd
est farm in Pennsyhania. It is a
chestnut farm located in the moan-
tain district of north-east Lycom
ing county, nearthe Sullivan coun
ty line. The trees of which there
are over three thousaud are in rows
exactly as fruit trees are in the or
chard and Mr. Warner gives them
as much and more attention as do
the owners of truit trees. The or
iginal saplings or sprouts were
culled from a wide area of chestnut
thicket, trimmed into shape, then
grafted with the American sweet
chestnut, a native nut of Pennsyl
vania. The result has been marv
elous. This year was the third
bearing season for tbe trees, some
of the nuts being astonishingly
large, measuring more than one
inch across. As many as seven
grew in a burr. The flavor of the
nuts, it was feared, might be im
paired by their size, but the kern
els are as fine and sweet as the
choicest Pennsylvania chestnut
picked up in the fields.
